A ChicoryLane Field Day:
Plein Air Drawing & Painting
June 9, 2012
Spring Mills, PA

ChicoryLane Farm will host a field day of drawing, painting, information, and discussion in a natural setting.  Noted landscape artist, Karl Eric Leitzel, will be on hand to do a "think-aloud" demonstration of techniques as he creates a small work.  However, emphasis will be on individuals doing their own work and talking with one-another. The farm offers a diversity of potential subjects, including vistas, wetlands of several kinds, remnant and successional forests as well as details for more focused studies including native plants, trees, old farm buildings and a log farm house.

The event is free, but registration is required and is limited to 15 participants. To register, call the Centre County Conservation District (814-355-6817) or email Ann Donovan ( For additional information, see the ChicoryLane Web site ( ) and follow the events link on that page. Views of the farm can also be found on the site.
